Arrow Stage Lines is proud to be an important piece of the continuing tradition. Arrow Stage Lines has been providing charter bus transportation for incoming teams for over a decade. Teams are welcomed with decked out charter motorcoaches. Returning teams always have their Arrow Stage Lines’ driver of choice. Each driver takes pride in sprucing up their Arrow Stage Lines motorcoaches in anticipation of each team arrival. “It’s a special time at Arrow when the CWS starts approaching,” said Arrow Stage Lines’ COO, Luke Busskohl. “Special operations meetings are held leading up to the event and each driver waits anxiously to see if their team is going to make it.” The company provides athletic charter bus transportation to collegiate teams all across the country, but teams earning a trip to the CWS, are not teams Arrow Stage Lines usually work with.
